spending a wonderful week in lisbon and it’s surroundings. even spending some time with the camera as a change. might post some more here the coming period of time – as you now i’m pretty sporadic around here nowadays.
so, it was about 30 years ago (sigh!) and i was backpacking in italy. i had borrowed an old pentax camera with 2 lenses, trying to transfer a growing interest in making pictures into practice. it didn’t go very well… one of my inspirations, and aspirations, was to make a poster with doors and knockers – so with the weekly challenge this came into mind again. i know i should have left it in the dusty bin it was stored in, the pictures are shamefully unsharp to start with. anyways, some 30 years ago i had an ambition, and as i say nowadays – ambition is just another word for failure.
i’m old enough to remember backpacking in a world without cellphones and text messaging, when you had to get coins and then find a phone booth to call home and tell you are still safe and sound. who needs phone booths nowadays? i hope no one needs this one in an emergency situation.
